Ola readcashers. Another day. Another article to write. I can't think of any so let's have a throwback since it's throwback Thursday (the time of writing).

But have you ever wondered why is it called Throwback Thursday or TBT? Well, we really do have a lot of internet trends and millennial terms that are hard to understand, especially the acronyms. The #BRB, #TGIF, #TBT, #OOTD, #IKR, are some that I only knew along with some other common acronyms and expressions.

The #ICYMI, do you know it? In Case You Missed It, better check for it, lol. And it's even tough to identify where do these words came from or who was the first person to use them. And if you will be asked, you will probably answer #IDK or I Don't Know, lol. Oh, another one. #LOL for Laughing Out Loud. Who was the origin of this term? πŸ˜…. I better not mind it, haha.

Back to #TBT, who's the origin of that term? According to Mr. Wiki, it was first used by @bobbysander22 on IG or Instagram who posted on Thursday the old photos of basketball footwear with the caption "Throwback Thursday." Then the slogan blew up worldwide and people started using #TBT or Throwback Thursday when posting their nostalgic-inducing photos of the past.


#TBT at Sweet Gum Woods

Speaking of throwback Thursday, it reminded me of my second hike here in Hong Kong. And I guess you have seen these photos already. So pardon me for reposting them here since I'm talking about a throwback, lol. Just bear with me for a while, haha.

And since the end of Autumn is fast approaching, the magical and foliage in the woods would be more reddish, orangish, yellowish, or brownish. And it's a perfect time to revisit the Tai Lam Country Park where the Sweet Gum trees can be found. I will revisit this place in December.

Tai Lam Country Park is one of the most visited country parks in Hong Kong, especially in the cold season from late November to early January, because of its Tai Tong red leaves or the sweet gum trees. Moreover, the scenery of its famous Tai Lam Chung Reservoir is truly relaxing and captivating.

The trail isn't that treacherous compared to hiking on other mountains of HK. In fact, the path is concrete, and easy to trace the way to the sweet gum woods. It will only take 40 minutes to walk to the main spot from the entrance road.

We were a bit sad though when we get there as leaves were already falling and many trees were already undressed. Nevertheless, the beauty of Autumn was still visible and fallen leaves created sepia hues on the ground that gave nostalgic vibes.

If I will go back to this place next time, I'll make sure to visit in December to capture the breathtaking sweet gum woods. The vibrant colors of Autumn foliage transform the place into a fairytale-like kingdom and make the ambiance magical.

If photographing Autumn leaves is your forte and planning to visit HK this Christmas season, the best month to witness this foliage is late November to early January. The best I guess is in December.

The reservoir near to the sweet gum woods is what I am planning to visit as well, as its photographs online are inviting and seem relaxing to stay there and get some fresher air.

Can you feel the magical vibe of the sweet gum tree? I feel like in Korea or Japan, haha. See you soon sweet gum woods.


#TBT with some PUNKs

Speaking of Thursday.

Yesterday, I opted to upgrade my PUNKs on BlockNG to earn more LAW tokens. The PUNKS #2129 (Police Punk) and #922 (with VR Punk) are giving me passive income effortlessly.

In a few weeks of staking my PUNKs, I was able to accumulate 96.408 LAW which I harvested to upgrade my PUNKs.

Upgrading my Police Punk to level 2 costs me 60 LAW and its power increased from 161 to 361, and hash rates from 12 to 19. It also gained a small amount percentage of popularity which is 0.25.

Meanwhile, my female PUNK with VR was upgraded to level 1 and it costs me 20 LAW. Its powers increased from 88 to 188 and hash rates from 9 to 13.

The total hash rates increased to 32.745. And in less than 24 hours of staking my upgraded PUNKs, I accumulated more than 7 LAW.


That's all folks, my throwback Thursday. I was busy the whole day yesterday and was able to complete this article only this morning. And pardon me for being inactive lately. The busyness started on Wednesday and might continue until Saturday. And something wrong is bothering me that I might reveal one of these days.

Thanks for your time.

I adore autumn, although in my country, being from the Caribbean, the seasonal changes are not so evident, I hardly enjoy the fall of the leaves of the trees, the fresh breeze, it transmits me melancholy.🍁

I really like this movement of yours. You will be able to adapt yourself to the natural landscape in every place. By blending in with the natural scenery, the beauty of the self is determined in a very beautiful way. In fact, if there is no such mindset, such beauty cannot be expressed, and when man can express his mind mentality very well with nature, then he can feel a lot of joy from within. Thank you.

Hong Kong is really a nice and wonderful place. The British really did some great work there. The current administration are doing well as. One thing that fascinate me about HK is how they economize limited space. (Ma'am Jane this is Tomi Ajax from the world of noise) I don't know much about punk yet.
